[Shanghai] Perch by The Nest – An Exquisite Evening in An Urban Oasis

Just as Shanghai is bemoaning the sudden departure of Botanik, The Nest group has taken over the newly vacated rooftop haven with a new concept, aptly named Perch by The Nest. Mr. Freddy Raoult has brought an entirely different sort of cooking to this familiar setting, showing off a creative streak previously unseen at the group’s other operations. A distinct contrast from Botanik’s knowledge-laden dining experience, an evening at Perch is, more than anything else, just a very good time.

[Shanghai] BOR Eatery – A Relocated, Restyled & Reimagined Pelikan

The newly relocated and restyled Pelikan looks decidedly more Nordic than its former self, even as its Danish chef, Mr. Kasper Pedersen, moves away from a Scandinavian bent. Yet it can probably be seen as a sign of evolution that by taking a step back from obvious references to his heritage, he is able to create a menu that feels more intimate and approachable than ever.

Pelikan, the Nordic-inspired restaurant tucked in a residential street in Jing’an, has been open all of nine months, but its food already feels vastly different from when I first visited last spring. Helmed by Danish chef Kasper Pedersen, the kitchen has honed its cooking, so that what was already good food to begin with becomes more precise and focused.
